Misrouted Fuel Line in Buick Verano Vehicles Prompts Recall Due to Risk of Fuel Leak
If the fuel leak contacts the engine it can increase the risk of a fire
General Motors (GM) has issued a recall affecting nearly 200 model year 2016 Buick Verano vehicles equipped with a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine.
The engine fuel line assembly on the recalled vehicles may be misrouted, allowing the fuel line to contact the surface of the engine. If the fuel line contacts the engine, the fuel line may wear, resulting in a fuel leak and increasing the risk of a fire.
The affected vehicles were manufactured from February 16, 2016 to May 12, 2016.
GM will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and local dealers will replace the fuel line assembly, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin on August 18, 2016. GM's reference number for this recall is 54180.
